Zion Williamson made his debut in NBA scoring 22 points shooting 4 for 4 from long range.
This is how he commented his first game in the NBA.
Per ESPN, Like many in the crowd, he wasn’t thinking about medical restrictions when it was time for him to come out of the game.
“It’s very hard,” Williamson said. “I’m 19. Honestly, in that moment, I’m not thinking about longevity. I’m thinking about winning the game. So it was very tough.”
“Just the energy the crowd brought, the energy the city brought, it was electric, and I’m just grateful that they did that,” Williamson said. “It was a dream come true to finally get out there; but at the end of the day, I did want to win, so just got to look to next game.”
